Celebrate the Festival of Archaeology with Oxford Preservation Trust

Talk and walk

The Festival of Archaeology is a nationwide event which celebrates archaeology between 15th-30th July. To celebrate Oxford’s rich archaeological past, Oxford Preservation Trust will be putting on a special talk and walk event. The guided walk will take place on Saturday the 15th of July between 10.30am – 12.00pm and will explore sections of the city that survive in surprising locations. From the origins of Oxford as an Anglo-Saxon borough during the reign of King Alfred (AD 871-899), through the major rebuilding of the stone wall in the early 13th Century, up to modern day where old walls still survive as property boundaries and garden walls, you will discover the history of the medieval town. There will also be a free talk on Tuesday 18th July at 5pm by Oxford City Council’s Archaeologist, David Radford. David will talk about some of the exciting recent archaeological discoveries in Oxford over the last year.
